Annyeong haseyo. How’re you today? We are braving on and off showers here that are giving us a good soaking.
*Waving* hi to new followers! Thank you for finding my little blog worthy of your reading time. And of course kamsa hamnida to those of you who have been around. I appreciate your visits and am keeping my promise to respond back to your comments here on WP or email.
Today’s post is about my BuJo that I have been pretty much keeping on top of weekly. These are the last two weeks of January:
The third week I used the bell cookie cutter. I wanted the bell to be more of a decoration for all of winter. I chose greens and browns to represent forest trees in the hills. I didn’t have a stamp of a bow so I used the chevron stencil to blend Versamark and to emboss gold powder to make pine tree branches.
The last week of January I was inspired by iced, holiday cookies, thus choosing bright colors to blend about. I stamped trees and embossed snowflakes to go all out winter.
I was excited for February to be in full force:
Many create a hello page to welcome in a new month so I made one too. I am loving this month because I get to use reds and pinks, colors I don’t normally use in my card work. I also have been making use of my Mama Elephant Pandas set to represent Chinese New Year.
Here is my monthly layout for February:
I used my new set of mini, BuJo stamps. I like the size of these symbols and their words.
I hope to expand a bit and figure out what other things I’d like to include in a monthly layout, like goals, etc. I feel I need to see an overview of the month besides looking ahead.
And here are the first, two, full weeks of the month:
I’ve been constant with the heart cookie cutter and the pandas. I’ve also gotten to use my heart stamps. In addition I’ve gotten to incorporate the Distress Inks Abandoned Coral and Ripe Persimmon into these weeks!
Can you tell I’m havin fun? In a way, I feel being artistic in my BuJo not only helps me organize some but it also keeps up my artistic mojo. Last year was somewhat of a struggle for me while making cards; I felt at times I was putting from a dry well and had to pull miracles out of thin air.
Okay, I must move on. I have some sewing prep to do while running laundry. And today is early dismissal for the kids so trying to get stuff done beforehand. Enjoy the rest of your Hump Day. TTYS. Annyeong kaseyo.
